Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Dream11: The IPL season is unravelling into a complete nightmare for Sunrisers Hyderabad. The 2016 champions are propping up the table following defeats in each of the first three games. This is not what fans, and pundits alike, expected from SRH considering all the big names on their roster, and the consistency they have shown in the last few seasons.
The only ray of hope for SRH is Rashid Khan, the Afghanistan superstar bowler who has been an exact shadow of himself.
Punjab Kings show that powerful batting can help a captain and a team only so much. Every team have to have some sort of balance. At the moment, PBKS are stuttering and look unbalanced due to their weak and inexperienced bowling.
However, it’s not that Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad have been outplayed. They had their moments in games, where they had the chances to move the game in their direction. This game will be no different. Once again, individual battles will decide the outcome. Here are 3 Players Battles To Watch Out For In PBKS vs SRH IPL 2021.
1. Rashid Khan vs KL Rahul
KL Rahul likes to bat deep. He bides his time on the pitch and values his wicket. He is the glue that sticks PBKS batting together. But Rahul will have to go through SRH’s best bowler, and arguably the hardest to score against in the limited-overs, in the shape of Rashid Khan. How Rahul tackle Afghanistan’s premium spinner will shape the outcome of the game.

2. David Warner vs Mohammed Shami: Warner was grinding his teeth at the boundary and could look only in disgust and helplessness at seeing his teammates falling like chips against Mumbai Indians. Warner later revealed that he intends to see out the game for SRH, and that’s where Mohammed Shami will be coming into the picture. It’s no secret that Shami is PBKS’s most potent attack but he hasn’t had his ways so far in IPL 2021. Let this battle roll out.
